Spinning


(click on photo to enlarge)
2 skeins from 4 oz of Merino Top from Susan's Spinning Bunny in Sandstone colorway.. I weighed out the exact same amount 2 oz each and spun from the fold onto 2 different bobbins and navajo plied for a fingering to sport weight yarn approx 220 yards.

Then this very pretty dyed roving which I think maybe mohair. I recieved it from Lulah's Knits recently, I spun up into a fine laceweight. There were 2 colors about an ounce each approx 105 yards each skein.
What to make with the mohair one I'm not sure.. I was thinking a pillow from One Skein but not sure it'll be enough. Any thoughts? The colors are just so pretty, looking for ideas to show them off...
